A donation from the Greater Alton Project coffee morning – held every Tuesday at Alton Methodist Church – has boosted Dementia-friendly Alton’s funds by £500.

Karen Murrell, Dementia-friendly Alton’s chair and co-ordinator, received the cheque from coffee morning volunteers Christine Allan and Angela Scott.

It will help Dementia-friendly Alton pay for refreshments, gardening materials and musicians.

The organisation plans to extend its services by launching the Alton Meeting Centre, and to move its Friday Music Café to Edgar Hall in Anstey Park from April.
